Tuesday, June 2, 9-11:30 a.m.
Mobility management professionals will have a double-header Tuesday at this year’s CTAA EXPO! In the morning, they are invited to a half-day Mobility Management Forum from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. During the Forum, they will be inspired by a presentation on innovation and then benefit from the field’s collective wisdom through two panel presentations: one in which NCMM grantees who have applied human-centered design in solving transportation challenges will talk about their work and the value human-centered design techniques have brought to their work, and the other in which practitioners will discuss technological innovations in transportation. Register for the forum here. The event will also be livecast for those who wish to participate remotely.
In the afternoon, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., mobility management practitioners will join other transportation professionals for an “unconference” conference on Mobility Innovation. For this session, the attendees drive the agenda-bringing forth issues they would like to learn and share with others in fast-paced 50-minute sessions. Learn more about this opportunity here.
The Mobility Innovation “Unconference”
Ever attend a conference and wish the topics covered would exactly match the subjects you are most interested in? Here’s your chance to make that happen. At the Mobility Innovation “Unconference,” attendees are in the driver’s seat. They suggest topics they’re interested in and then lead discussions with other attendees to learn about their experience with that topic, including current and evolving knowledge, work-arounds, partnerships, ideas, and implemented solutions. Often, those who propose a session are likely to find others who are tackling the same question. Sessions are informal, impromptu, and lively.
During each of the three 45-minute time blocks, multiple sessions will be offered. The exact number depends on how many sessions attendees propose and are prepared to lead. All participants are free to choose which session to attend depending on the topics they are most interested in.
Who should come to the Mobility Innovation Unconference? Those looking for input on problems they want to solve, those who are curious about what technologies could benefit their systems, and those or who have something big to share. All are all.
CTAA’s EXPO is the premier annual event for community and public transportation professionals to participate in essential learning events and network with colleagues. Speakers and sessions will keep attendees up to date with innovative technology, workforce development, communication strategies, funding, and regulations. The EXPO also features a trade show with all of the latest community transportation goods and services.
There are a lot of elements that comprise the EXPO. These include:
Where drivers from across the country compete to see who is the best.
One, two, or three-day long sessions where an individual topic is explored in depth. These sessions cost extra.
Informative sessions with a focus on new developments and initiatives.
Shorter sessions geared to bringing participants the knowledge and expertise they need to thrive in today’s changing environment.
The largest annual trade show in the community transportation industry.
The EXPO has many social events, meals and other opportunities for participants to meet with and learn from their peers.
